The Wu-Tang Clan leader and heavy rocker Odadjian first announced plans for their Achozen project in 2005, but a full release failed to come to fruition due to scheduling difficulties.

However, RZA recently revisited the tracks and decided to incorporate the tunes with a limited-edition portable speaker he has created for audio brand Boombotix, making the eight Achozen songs available to fans who purchase the Boombotix Boombot Pro.

The hip-hop veteran reveals he was determined to make the work public this year (15) to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Armenian genocide - a topic of "struggle" he and Armenian-American Odadjian bonded over when they first met. They even tackled the subject of the killings by Ottoman Turks in the song Fabricated Lies.

RZA tells, "In January, I had took (sic) a listen to the Achozen album again in my studio - sober - and I was like, 'Man, this s**t is f**king... How the f**k...? Wow. We never gave this to the world.'

"So I talked to Shavo and he tells me that this is the 100-year anniversary of the Armenian genocide. 'Then we got to do it!' It just hit me like, 'Yo, this is a great place to put the record at...'"
